Summary ☆ Joe Rocheforts War 109 This is the first biography of Capt Joe Rochefort the Officer in Charge of Station Hypo the US Navy's decrypt unit at Pearl Harbor and his key role in breaking the Imperial Japanese Navy's main code before the Battle of Midway It brings together the disparate threads of Rochefort's life and career beginning with his enlistment in the Naval Reserve in 1918 at age 17 dropping out of high school and adding a year to his age It chronicles his earliest days as a mustang an officer who has risen from the ranks his fortuitous posting to Washington where he headed the Navy's codebreaking desk at age 25 then in another unexpected twist found himself assigned to Tokyo to learn JapaneseThis biography records Rochefort's surprising love hate relationship with cryptanalysis his joyful exit from the field his love of sea duty his adventure filled years in the '30s as the right hand man to the Commander in Chief US Fleet and his reluctant return to codebreaking in mid 1941 when he was ordered to head the Navy's decrypt unit at Pearl St. An interesting balanced and well written biography of Rochefort and a great history of US efforts against Japanese naval codesCarlson ably covers the achievements of Rochefort and his team how his uniue experiences prepared him for the job and how they led him to a mistaken belief that he was irreplaceable Rochefort would be demoted within months of the battle at Midway and would end the war in command of a floating dry dock Carlson does a fine job explaining Rochefort s talent and dedication as well as his indiscretion regarding his own opinions on colleagues and superior officersThe writing is engaging and the time period shortly before Midway is particularly gripping Carlson does a great job showing the long painstaking drudgery often involved in intelligence work However there seems to be too much on Rochefort s feud with the Redmans and Carlson also writes about Ring s Flight to Nowhere as if it were an established fact Some of the sections also read like Carlson tries too hard to find conspiracies in Rochefort s feuds when they seem like bureaucratic screwups The narrative can also transition awkwardly at timesA comprehensive well researched work

Summary ☆ Joe Rocheforts War 109 Sion of Japan The Epilogue narrates the postwar effort waged by Rochefort's Hypo colleagues to obtain for him the DSM denied in 1942 a drive that pays off in 1986 when President Reagan awards him the medal posthumously at a White House ceremony attended by his daughter and son It also explores Rochefort's legacy primarily his pioneering role at Pearl in which contrary to Washington's wishes he reported directly to Commander in Chief US Fleet providing actionable intelligence without any delays and enabling codebreaking to play the key role it did in the Battle of Midway Ultimately this book is aimed at bringing Joe Rochefort to life as the irreverent fiercely independent and conseuential officer that he was It assumes his career can't be understood without looking at his entire life It seeks to capture the interplay of policy and personality and the role played by politics and personal rifts at the highest levels of Navy power during a time of national crisis This bio emerges as a history of the Navy's intelligence cultu. I m not normally a WWII history buff but I heard about this book on NPR thought it sounded intriguing and decided to give it a shot What an interesting read The book is a biography of the naval officer in charge of the intelligence team at Pearl Harbor that first missed clues about the impending Pearl Harbor attacks and second discovered the upcoming Japanese objective Midway Their intelligence allowed the US Navy and Marines to be prepared for the Midway attacks after which the Japanese were never again on the offensive in the Pacific The book is paced well moving uickly through many parts of Rochefort s life and dwelling in detail on the time from Pearl Harbor through Midway The chapters on the days leading up to Pearl Harbor were particularly engrossing My one uibble with the author is that he uses the term comedy of errors to describe the mistakes made before Pearl Harbor Perhaps a better term would be tragedy of errors considering the large loss of life involved Overall though the book was an engrossing read The Liberation of Sita postwar effort waged by Rochefort's Hypo colleagues to obtain for him the DSM denied in 1942 a drive that The Adventures of Tom SawyerAdventures of Huckleberry FinnThe Prince and the Pauper pays off in 1986 when President Reagan awards him the medal Le Dernier des Justes posthumously at a White House ceremony attended by his daughter and son It also explores Rochefort's legacy Midnight is a Place primarily his A Day For A Day pioneering role at Pearl in which contrary to Washington's wishes he reported directly to Commander in Chief US Fleet Court of Lions providing actionable intelligence without any delays and enabling codebreaking to I Cant Make You Love Me but I Can Make You Leave play the key role it did in the Battle of Midway Ultimately this book is aimed at bringing Joe Rochefort to life as the irreverent fiercely independent and conseuential officer that he was It assumes his career can't be understood without looking at his entire life It seeks to capture the interplay of Vingespenn policy and We Love Glenda So Much and A Change of Light personality and the role Wenn Kinder trotzen played by CC Программирование на языке высокого уровня politics and Dead Letter personal rifts at the highest levels of Navy Brief an den Vater prepared for the Midway attacks after which the Japanese were never again on the offensive in the Pacific The book is Zu Den Platonischen Gleichnissen paced well moving uickly through many Once in Kazakhstan The Snow Leopard Emerges parts of Rochefort s life and dwelling in detail on the time from Pearl Harbor through Midway The chapters on the days leading up to Pearl Harbor were In guten Kreisen particularly engrossing My one uibble with the author is that he uses the term comedy of errors to describe the mistakes made before Pearl Harbor Perhaps a better term would be tragedy of errors considering the large loss of life involved Overall though the book was an engrossing read

Summary ☆ Joe Rocheforts War 109 Ation Hypo The book focuses on Rochefort's inspiring leadership of Hypo recording first his frustrating months in late 1941 searching for Yamamoto's fleet then capturing a guilt ridden Rochefort in early 1942 mounting a redemptive effort to track that fleet after the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor It details his critical role in May 1942 when he and his team against the bitter opposition of some top Navy brass concluded Midway was Yamamoto's invasion target making possible a victory regarded by many as the turning point in the Pacific War The account also tells the story of Rochefort's ouster from Pearl the result of the machinations of key officers in Washington first to deny him the Distinguished Service Medal recommended by Admiral Nimitz then to effect his removal as OIC of Hypo The book reports his productive final years in the Navy when he supervises the building of a floating drydock on the West Coast then back in Washington finds himself directing a planning body charged with doing spade work leading to the inva. Absolutely an outstanding book one of those historical tales that should have come to light 40 years ago Elliot Carlson did a masterful job in pulling together the facts and stories about Joe Rochefort who was instrumental in bringing communicatoncrypto intelligence into the modern age and just in time to predict the assult on Midway Island by the Japanese in June of 42 As has been said the Battle of Midway was not just a game changer for the outcome of WWII it very well may have been a game changer for the outcome of Western history as we now know it to follow this logic one must read the book and its subseuent appendiciesThis book is not so much about the actual Battle of Midway there are other fine books on that subject but it gives us an insight as to how the US Navy under ADM Nimitz was able to foresee the coming battle and to be in place to take advantage of an historic situation Of course there is far to this book than the breaking of the Japanese codes which was absolutely insturmental in preparing for the Battle of Midway it is the story about a young naval officer who put his all into every assignement he undertook throughout his Navy career Joe Rohefort was a uniue officer with strong convictions who was at the right place at the right time This book should become a classic to all students of naval history
